Weekend: 50 first courses that will make you fit your shoe – Italian Cuisine


The etiquette rejects the habit of the sweet tooth to collect what is left in the bottom of the plate with a nice piece of bread, still enjoying for a few bites of the first delicious. Indeed, to put it all the rules of etiquette would have it done only on informal occasions, helping with a fork and not using hands directly. But, without saying it to anyone, we could get away this weekend and cook something so good on purposeor to make the shoe inevitable. Creamy risotto, pasta with sauce, but also with succulent condiments they will know how to tempt you, but do not be caught unprepared!

Bread can not be missing

Before cooking one of these 50 tasty first courses, make sure you have at home good fresh bread, maybe type Puglia which lends itself well to picking up the sauce if it is offered in slices of the thickness of a finger. If you love sweetheart, it will be perfect too slipper, but take care to eliminate the excess flour before bringing it to the table or it will end in the sauce!

here's how you keep fit … at the table – Italian Cuisine


It takes a lot of energy to do a thousand things and all successfully. How you do it? Lady Gaga starts from the table: balanced meals, but without renouncing the pleasure of the palate. that's how

I wonder why the voice was turning Lady Gaga, during his last world tour, he only ate sushi and champagne. Nothing else. A fake news, of course. Also because of the incredible expenditure of energy that the popstar employs to carry out projects on projects, successes on successes. From the Super Bowl to the Joanne World Tour, from the leading role in A Star Is Born at the Las Vegas residency inaugurated last December. There are those who promise that they will convolve with their mate Christian Carino, just in Italy, in the summer, but she does not confirm or deny. He lives at the moment, Gaga, accomplice a healthy life and, above all, a balanced diet, attentive to excesses. Describing her is her former personal chef and childhood friend Bo O'Connor, who some time ago confided to "The Feast" the sins of Lady Gaga at the time of ArtRave, the tour that took the singer around world in 2014. He is currently executive chef at The Pomeroy restaurant in New York, where he delights the curious with many of the specialties he prepared for Joanne, especially during his trips.

The Lady Gaga diet

The password is only one: lightness. After all, to cope with the many commitments that you take on, you certainly could not start the day with a package of Doritos. From perfect Italian-American, Lady Gaga has always had a predilection for tomato sauce, used as a condiment for a particular version of pasta, especially the one made at home without white flour. Also included in the diet are low-sodium beans, quinoa and various varieties of fruit and vegetables. Breakfast, in particular, focuses on eggs, greek yogurt and muesli. Throat sins, however, also affect her. So then the hamburger is included in its diet, although a bit different from the traditional one. The meat used, in fact, is that of ground turkey or chicken, exalted with herbs and spices of various kinds. Another staple of its nutrition is a good hydration: Lady Gaga is a great tea consumer along with coconut water, preferably fresh. In case of malaise or weakness, to come to the rescue is an energy drink created especially for her, based on fresh turmeric, ginger and lemongrass.

Space also for the centrifuged cabbage, spinach, celery, cucumber, parsley and lemon. For energy supplies, his preferences go to whole salted pretzels, crispy crackers, rice chips, healthy bars and baked potatoes. The chocolate, then, is one of its weaknesses, which is abandoned sparingly and only in case of strong desire; as well as for a shot of whiskey after the concerts. After all, if the stars can not give themselves to the pleasures of the table, what would they be?

How not to look like a fat frump when pregnant

You will notice, because you are smart, that I almost never promote anything on this blog. “Oh it’s too much like hard work,” I say to the occasional food person who gets in touch wondering if I’d like a free packet of spelt. “I’m so lazy,” I say. “I’ll never get round to it, sorry.”

But the fact is that I’m not interested in food freebies. (Sometimes I wonder whether I’m interested in food full stop.) If I want something for free I will say to my husband: “I want some rare albino truffle please,” and he will make a phonecall and it will turn up on my doorstep and I won’t even have to write about it.

But clothes? Cloooooothes?? Special nice clothes for preggy ladies that don’t make you look fat or pinch your bump or squish your boobs?

“Do you want some?” asked my friend Celia. “From ME+EM. We want you to be a sort of brand ambassador.”

“FUCK YEAH” I screamed. I didn’t even stop to say “Oh but why me? I’m so shit and fat and ugly. You don’t want me, you want someone more glamorous and interesting.” No, I did NOT say that, I just asked how much stuff I could have. Should I hire a parcel van to drive to the shop? Because I can do one on my Addison Lee app…

Then I immediately started to fret about it, as I always do. That the clothes wouldn’t fit or wouldn’t be nice and I would take a lot and then not wear them but have to be nice about them anyway. And then I would break our special bond, the one where I tell you the absolute truth about absolutely everything and don’t try and sell you anything, ever.

Don’t worry. I am not leading you a merry dance. This shit is for real. It’s amazing. There are dresses here that make you look, if you’re under, say, 20-24 weeks like you’re not pregnant. Especially from the front. And after that, they just expand like magic so even though you look like a Sherman tank, you feel comfy.

Pregnancy wear is mostly so so horrible. Massive floaty things with a big print. But this is all terrifically chic. And THE best long-length jersey vests and long-sleeved t-shirts EVAH.

THERE’S EVEN A SALE ON RIGHT NOW!!!

These are the things I got, which are particularly excellent and I recommend to you, pregnant or not. More original, I think, and better fabrics than Isabella Oliver or Seraphine – though God bless them both, eh? Where would we be without them.

On the ME+EM website they do a thing where they use skinny models for all the clothes, so you can’t really imagine how they would work on a massive pregnant arse and giant blobby tits, so this is my edit for anyone with a blubbery mess to cover up.

Just think of me like a very badass Gwyneth Paltrow, yeah?

Almost all of this comes in different colours and is available HERE. The sizing is very generous. I am 5’6” and weigh in at 10 stone 3.5 and fit into a small.

Crepe swing dress. MAKES YOU LOOK NOT PREGNANT. £104. You will wear it everywhere and it’s crepe so it won’t get bobbles.

Tuck neck swing dress. This is just so cool, such a nice shape. Great with long boots, ankle boots or little slippers. £115. I will be wearing this on Christmas Day.



Extra long layer T. The last word in long-length long-sleeved tops. Soft as a kitten. £42. There are also excellent vests at £19 each. Fucking BARGAIN.

V-neck box pleat dress. Very similar to one at Isabella Oliver but a nicer colour, a more slimming fit and less expensive at £104

An amazing thing. If you only get one thing when you are pregnant, get this. It is sort of drapey and concealing without being heavyweight so you don’t end up looking like a piece of soft furniture. It also has lovely long sleeves. I plan to wear mine until it has holes in it. Knit sleeve 3/4 jacket – £119

And a snood. Because I’ve decided that I hate scarves. Wide rib snood – £68
 

Happy shopping and have a great weekend.
